Malala's doctor: 'Pleased with the progress she has made so far'


A consultant treating the Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousaf-zai at Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital has described being impressed by her "resilience and strength".

The 14-year-old was shot in the head on a school bus by Taliban gunmen last week.

She was flown to Britain yesterday for treatment after being attacked as a punishment for campaigning for the right to an education. Dr David Rosser spoke to reporters outside the hospital.
